Don't Expect New Mega Man Legends Anytime Soon

Mega Man Legends Capcom is specializing in breaking hearts and squashing dreams today as another older Capcom game has been denied the chance for a re-release or sequel.  The game in question?  Mega Man Legends from the Sony PlayStation era.  I direct you to GamingUnion for the paragraph in question.

GU: Is Capcom planning anything new with the Mega Man Legends series such as a 3rd installment or us getting the PSP ports of the 1st two games from Japan?

Seth: After
Marvel vs Capcom 2, MM Legends is probably one of our most fan-requested games. MM creator Keiji Inafune is certainly aware of the fans' request—his office is basically a shrine to the stuff he’s gotten from fans over the years. There are no plans right now, but Mega Man 9 came totally out of left-field, so you never know with that guy. If he gets inspired, and things can happen very quickly.

I have to agree that a sequel is pretty far-fetched at this point as is a UMD release of either game in the series for the PlayStation Portable.  However, once again I see an opportunity for digital delivery to come to the rescue.  If Capcom is uncertain if a new Mega Man Legends game would perform in the market, then why not bring the original game to the PlayStation Network?  Sell it for $6.99, make it playable on both the PlayStation 3 and PSP, and see what happens.  Moreover, Legends hero MegaMan Volnutt is coming back into the spotlight in North America in the upcoming Tatsunoko vs Capcom, and if Super Smash Bros. Melee taught us anything, it's that players are interested in the history of unfamiliar characters (hello, Marth from Fire Emblem).  Volnutt's appearance in Tatsunoko could be just the springboard he needs to make a proper return in a new adventure.
